Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY! [ Jun 14, 2016 ]
He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.
THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.
Kudos from David Brin [ Jun 13, 2016 ]
QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)
Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.
The Transcript For This Page
Stone is in Nicole's hotel room, seated on the bed as she brings up Nicole's search history on the room Screen. The history shows a short list, which includes the names Claud Southend, The Lucky Duck Club, the Bully Goat Tavern, and Rando Greene.
Stone is in the Lucky Duck Club, talking to a bartender. She is showing an image of Nicole, but the bartender doesn't seem to recognize her.
Stone is in the Bully Goat Tavern. It's less crowded now, but there are still some patrons in the background. She's talking with the bartender, who does recognize Nicole's image.
One of the patrons, a rough-looking male, has walked up to Stone, shouting something while he angrily shoves her. Some of the other patrons look on with anticipation.
Stone effortlessly lifts the ruffian by his groin. His face reveals his agony. The other patrons are saucer-eyed.
Stone casually tosses the ruffian over her shoulder. The other patrons shy away.
In the Offworld Lounge, Stone scans the table where Nicole and Rando had been sitting with her visor.
As Stone walks down the street, she holds a palm alongside her face, indicating she is making a tel call.
Stone: So far I have two subjects, a journo and a publicist. I suspect our guy is the latter, but I'll be looking into both of them.
